Newly released internal documents from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reveal the agency has been tracking and cataloging the social media posts of elected US officials.
The records were obtained earlier this week through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and were posted online by investigative journalist Sheryl Attkisson.
According to the documents, the social media posts, which are all CDC or vaccine-related, are logged into a database and broken down by party affiliation. The logs include information like the text of the post, the date it was sent, a link, and even notes about what was said.
It is unclear what the data is currently being used for, but, one thing’s clear, the so-called health ‘experts’ are awfully concerned with what’s being said about them online.
It doesn’t really seem to matter too much whether the posts include criticism or praise, as both Democrats and Republicans, like Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), can be found on the list.
